The Tennis Chick

I need the "Pagelines Sections" plugin

Recommended Posts

When I temporarily switched to DMS, I was warned to delete the Pagelines Sections plugin, as it caused issues with the switch. So I did it, but now want it back, as I'm not a programmer of any kind, and DMS is not nearly as simple to use as Framework. 

 

Does anyone know where I can download the Pagelines Sections plugin again? It's got to be online somewhere... Pagelines archives of some kind?

You dont need to be a programmer to use DMS ;) 

 

All the Framework included content is on this link https://www.dropbox.com/s/muyy8k5xcjvbvlo/Framework-included-content.zip

 

Please let us know if we can help with DMS useage, it will be worth it in the end. Is it setting up or getting to grips with using it?

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi Martin :-)

Thanks so much for the link. I went back to Framework because I was totally lost in trying to configure my home page. I figured I'd be on the forum too much in getting help with just that page. From uploading plugins, to removing unwanted space above the nav bar, to configuring full width nav bar, etc... I'm just a technologically-challenged mess :-)

Hey there Martin :-)

 

I'm having trouble uploading the sections file... I'm getting the error message " Extension problem found. The file did not appear to be a Pagelines section."

 

See I told you I'm a mess :-)

You need to extract the contents from the zip file using your machines compression programme. If you're on a mac it should work automatically or if you are using a PC you might need to download free cersion of Winzip or Winrar 

 

Inside the zip are the files you will need to install. Install each .zip as necessary.

 

Any problems let us know

I extracted all the zipped files, and there were two that had the word "sections" in them -  the "plugin-paglines-legacy-sections", which I installed, and the "section-pagelines-section-template" which wouldn't load - I get this error message: 

 

Unpacking the package…
Installing the plugin…
 
The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
 
Plugin install failed.
 
I'm unable to put my site online now, as there are TONS of plugins which I purchased both from Pagelines and from individuals, which were uninstalled during the transfer to DMS, so my site is a mess. I need to get the sections plugin back so my section plugins will install.

Similar issue... I'm trying to add the content box section. I have the files from your Dropbox link above. How do I upload this section?

You will need to upload them using an FTP client and upload them to your child themes section folder.

Thanks. Looking for that folder but I don't see it. I see all the sections listed under wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections .... I tried uploading the "contentbox" file to this area but it didn't work, as expected. what am I missing?

Thats the main theme folder, you need to upload it to your child themes section folder, like I mentioned above.

I must be an idiot or blind, but I can't find that folder ("child themes section) anywhere in all my directories. ??

There is no section called Child theme sections, it is a separate theme, you install.

 

You can create your own very own child theme or use this basic one I have created here - https://github.com/Dannyholt/skeleton-plframework

Ok I've finally gotten around to doing this. I created a child theme that was an exact copy of my current theme and put the content box folder/files into the theme's section folder. I activated my child theme on my site, but I'm not seeing the content box among my other available sections on the drag & drop page. ???

The folder needs to be called sections not section, change it to sections and this should resolve your issue.

Resurrecting this thread. I'm trying to add the content box section to another website. I've created the child theme, added the sections folder, and loaded the content box directory and files. Activated the child theme. I'm still not seeing it appear on the drag and drop page with available sections. Tried attaching a screen shot of my file directories but it's too large. hmmmm.

Please take a screenshot of your child themes section folder so we can see what the ContentBox directory is called. Upload your screenshot to a image hosting service such as Imgur or DropBox.

You do not have the PageLines sections plugin installed, which is likely the cause of your issue. You can download it from here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/muyy8k5xcjvbvlo/Framework-included-content.zip

However, I logged into your site and you're using the free version of PageLines Framework. PageLines Framework is now open source so you can use the pro version. Therefore, I recommend you upgrade and use that or better yet, upgrade to DMS Framework. As PageLines Framework is a legacy theme, has been for almost two years and therefore, our support is very limited.
